D day tomorrow

This injury has been getting to me. Majorly. I can't think about anything else at the minute - and I barely think straight at the best of times! Blogging has completely gone out the window!

Physio session again tomorrow, after which I think I will make my final decision.

The way I see it, if I am not 100%, I would rather not do it - my ultimate goal is still the full marathon next year, and risking aggravating an injury on a half marathon is just not worth it long term. To be honest, even if I am 100%, the complete loss of confidence in my legs will be holding me back. Think it will take some time to get that one back unfortunately.

So chances are, despite as much as it will hurt (and believe me it will!), I think I would be sensible to withdraw from this one, and give myself a few more weeks to build up my leg strength and confidence again. I will post again tomorrow.

Hey, I just discovered your blog and think it's awesome! I am a runner as well and just completed my first marathon this past January at Walt Disney World. I also am planning on trying to do London! As much as injury sucks (I have hip flexor problems), taking time off is the best thing you can do, otherwise you just risk not being able to run all season. Get better and then run your heart out!

By the way, I am following you. Check out my blog too, which focuses on training, running, healthy lifestyle and humorous stories www.otherstuffgood.blogspot.com

Good Luck!
